Detectives in Downpatrick are investigating a shooting incident in the Dromara area of Co Down last night.
Two masked men entered a house on Park Road and tied up two males inside, during the incident.
A third male who called at the house was also forced into the property and tied up.
A PSNI spokesman said the masked men threatened the males before firing a shot into the wall of a room in the house and making off.
Detective Inspector Denise Graham said: “This was a very frightening incident for the men involved and they have been left shaken. “No one has the right to intimidate or threaten another person. We would like to find those responsible and we are asking anyone who has information that may assist our investigation to contact us in Downpatrick on 101, quoting ref: 34 171215.”
